How many letterboards do you own? Is it ok to own more than one? I think I'm up to four now. One white, one black, one fuchsia, and one green. And I love each one of them. A couple of ways I like to dress up my letterboards is with paper embellishments. Today I'm sharing how you can add paper flowers to your favorite letterboard. Keep reading for the complete instructions and to shop the supplies. Be sure to pin your favorite images for inspiration or instruction later!

How to Design Paper Flowers for a Letterboard:


Step 1: Die cut several petals out of cardstock using a 3D flower die and a manual die cut machine. You can also download several 3D paper shapes through Silhouette. Some of my favorite are from Echo Park Paper, which you can find HERE.

Step 2: Use a rounded tool like a pen, paintbrush, or pencil to round the petals either outward or inward depending on how you like your flowers to look.

Step 3: Use a glue gun to glue the flaps on the bottom of each petal so they slightly overlap.

Step 4: Use a glue gun to glue the largest petals to the outside edge of a punched circle. Continue this until all layers of petals have been added.

Step 5: Use flair badges for the center of each flower. I especially like these tropical ones you can find HERE. They are so gorgeous and they make perfect flower centers.

Step 6: Fold a 6" x 12" strip of green cardstock in half and cut leaves from the paper. Cut them in both small, medium, and large sizes.

Here's another look at this project. Think of all the different flowers you could make for each season. To adhere the flowers and leaves, use strong glue dots. This will allow you to remove them after the season has passed without damaging your letterboard. Pull the glue dots away from the felt carefully so you don't tear the felt.
